Water for Survival

Kajiado Water Drilling Projects

Located in the southern part of Kenya, Kajiado County is home to a Maasai community of approximately 200,000. However, the area lacks water sources that can provide the quality and quantity needed to support the local population. This project will also include elements tied to girls’ empowerment, education, and sustainability.

Our partner non-profit organization, IndiMark Kenya, originated and operates in the Kajiado communities in Kenya. Together, we moved forward with operations of the Kajiado Water Project back in January 2019. In March and April, 2019 we conducted three surveys to evaluate the best potential water sources for the community, including springs and groundwater. The surveys were undertaken at: Eiti village in Loodo Ariak, Olkudate village in Ntashat, and Ngatatek village in Ololilai in Kajiado County. We are currently working on Phase II of the project.

WaterPOD - Makindu Community Water Purification Collaboration

We recently partnered with community leaders and the village Ilngarroj to purchase three WaterPOD units from Stonehouse Water Technologies. Stonehouse Water Technologies is a Wisconsin-based water purification company that does not use chemicals, is environmentally friendly, and conserves beneficial minerals from the water. Dr. Moe Mukiibi, a globally recognized Water Expert, will provide technical support for the project. The water pod purification system will reduce the cost of drinking water by 72%.

  • 2.1 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water services
  • 4.5 billion people do not have access to sanitation services
  • Water scarcity already affects four out of every 10 people
  • 3.6 billion people (nearly half the global population) live with water scarcity, and this population could increase to 4.8–5.7 billion by 2050
